The McHenry office of the Illinois Pain Institute welcomes you! We are committed to helping patients achieve pain relief. In the U.S., 1 in 4 adults report some type of pain, and around 10% have chronic pain, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). One of the most common complains is lower back pain, which affects 20% of those ages 65 years and older. Additionally, 15% of adults suffer from chronic headaches.
Our experienced doctors at the McHenry center understand that pain occurs following an injury, surgery, lack of exercise or from age. In addition, people develop chronic problems such as lumbar spinal stenosis, facet joint arthritis, and degenerative disc disease. Chronic pain can affect all aspects of life and impacts a person emotionally, physically and psychologically. We believe that by controlling or eliminating your chronic pain, you will be able to get back to living a healthy and satisfying life.
At the McHenry Illinois Pain Institute office, we use interventional therapies to treat the underlying source of your pain. These techniques involve epidural steroid injections, medial branch nerve blocks, and electrical stimulation. In addition, you will likely see a physical therapist or chiropractor in order to improve muscle strength and function. Our goal is to get you less reliant on pain medication while achieving relief from physical discomfort.
